I remember years ago seeing a video about a performance at the Melbourne town hall where someone played the pipe organ using a program called Kinect that allows you to create music through conducting.

I see that Rachel Mahone (DoM elect of Coventry Cathedral) is on the Inside Music show on BBC Radio 3, 1:00 p.m. today.

I heard Rachel in concert a few weeks ago - should be an interesting programme.

Organ concerts / P.D. Collins organ on BBC Radio 3

I notice that the Collins organ formerly in the Turner Sims hall in SOuthampton is on BBC Radio 3 this evening from its new home in a Suffolk Church, played by Catherine Ennis.  BBC R3, 7:30 - 10:00

Good news, especially for those of us at risk from the current Coronavirus & having to self-isolate.

That looks interesting - and sounds good too (at least in Jonathon Scott's You Tube post).  First time I've come across 3 consoles controlling the same instrument.  Are there any others (there are a good number of dual console instruments).  There was an organ with no less than 5 consoles - see NPOR E01271. To be fair, the 4 subsiduary consoles were short compass and designed for specific purposes.  It also had a barrel mechanism.  Just one of the oddities of the pipe organ world!

This "super little organ" - as described by one of our leading organ builders, has become available due to a change of personnel and policy, mid-stream of a relocation project. It is beautifully made of the finest materials. It was overhauled some years ago by Messrs' Rushworth & Dreaper, including releathering of the pedal and off-note pneumatic motors. The blower has a three-phase motor by Bull, described by an electrical contractor as "very good." There is no asbestos situation, as the blower was previously unencased in an adjoining room. Also with hand blowing with feeders still in place. A very reasonable quotation for an alternative new single-phase blower has already been obtained, should it be required.

Max. height front pipes 5334 / to top of Swell box 3860 / total width of front 3352 (including side panels with dummies extra to main organ) / depth including pedal chest along rear 3352 plus 450 for pedalboard. Pedal chest could be relocated to suit, thus reducing depth.

Great  8   8   8   4   4        Swell  8   8   8   4   8   Pedal  16   8.    Excellent manual tracker action with perfect touch. Pedal pneumatic. Central balanced Swell pedal.

Some ranges of tracker ends have been carefully unbuttoned, the remainder snipped to accommodate the demolition deadline. That apart, and subject to three-phase availability, the organ is "ready to go."

The organ has been professionally dismantled and is stored in secure, temperate atmospheric conditions in Hull, easily accessible for inspection and/or collection at any mutually convenient time.
